Last night I wrote - and immediately sent off - a two hundred word pitch for one of my completed novels. Of course I am thrilled that I did this but right now, I am forcing myself not to think about it. Why? Because it is horribly nerve wracking to me! Generally, I'm not a person who suffers with self doubt but pitching my novels makes me insane. Did I write the best pitch I possibly could have? I keep wondering if two hundred words is even enough to properly convey a sixty-five thousand word book? My gut reaction is no it is absolutely not! Then I take a deep breath and change my mind. If I can't catch a readers attention - in this fast-paced world we live in - within two hundred words then sixty-thousand more aren't going to make much difference.
So, I do believe I wrote a great pitch. There's no way it covers every thing in my book but it would get my attention if it was a book blurb. My husband also likes it and as he's my biggest supporter so that means something to me. Now the waiting game begins. I think, rather than make myself too anxious over the wait - I'll just start writing a new book.
